Memphis Grizzlies (contact tracing) next three games have been postponed

The Grizzlies next three games scheduled for Friday (Trail Blazers), Sunday and Monday (Kings) have been postponed due to contact tracing.

Fantasy Impact

The Grizzlies don’t have enough “available players” on the roster for the next three games due to contact tracing. These games will be made up at a later date. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups accordingly.

Ja Morant scores 17 and dishes 10 in win over Suns

Ja Morant recorded 17 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3PT, 6-8 FT), 10 assists, three rebounds, two steals, and a block in Monday's win over the Suns.

Fantasy Impact

Morant was off to an insane start to the 2020-2021 season, scoring 44 and 28 in his first two outings. Since his return from injury though, he's scored exactly 17 twice while shooting 50% from the field and 20% from deep. The reigning Rookie of the Year should improve on those shooting clips, and as he does, his scoring production will also rise. Use this opportunity to pry Morant away from a frustrated owner as his buy-low window may be open.

Ja Morant returns from injury and leads team with 17 in win over 76ers

Ja Morant played 31 minutes and logged 17 points (7-14 FG, 0-3 3PT, 3-4 FT), six assists, and a steal in Saturday's 104-106 win over the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

Morant missed eight games with an ankle sprain but returned to the lineup on Saturday and did what he's done since his rookie year; lead the Grizzlies in scoring. The Grizzlies are now sitting at .500 on the year and Morant will hope to take them to the playoffs. He's averaging 24.0 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.8 rebounds per game over just five games this season, with one having an early exit due to the injury. Expect the reigning Rookie of the Year to improve on these numbers as the season progresses.

Ja Morant (ankle) starting Saturday vs. Sixers

Grizzlies star PG Ja Morant (ankle) will make his return and start Saturday night vs. the Sixers.

Fantasy Impact

Morant has missed just about three weeks, which is on the early side of his 3-5 week timeline. He’ll start against Philadelphia, but he could be eased into game action, so it’s possible he doesn’t see a full set of minutes. Morant’s return signals a move back to the bench for Tyus Jones, who has filled in admirably over the last few weeks.

Ja Morant (ankle) questionable to face Sixers on Saturday

Grizzlies PG Ja Morant is listed as questionable for Saturday's contest against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

Morant wasn't able to make his debut on Friday with the Grizzlies/Timberwolves game being postponed. He's trending up but expect him to see 25-30 minutes in his first game back from a grade 2 ankle sprain weeks ago.
